Hi
Moving on

    Jesus answered them, ?I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in my Father?s name bear witness about me, but you do not believe because you are not among my sheep.
John 10:25-‬26 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.10.25-26.ESV       


After everything our Lord had said and done the Jew's still did not believe the power for everything our Lord did came from the Father which proved that it was the Father had sent him.
Who is our Lords sheep they are all those who believe in him and have faith in him these are his sheep let us make sure that we are part of his flock he is the good shepherd he will look after his flock and lead us home to paradise.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi

  My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me,is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father?s hand. I and the Father are one.?
John 10:27-‬30 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.10.27-30.ESV       


What wonderful promises from our Lord if we are part of his flock we are safe nobody can seperate us fron him and we shall have eternal life and we will be with the Lord forever how wonderful will that be.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi

    The Jews picked up stones again to stone him. Jesus answered them, ?I have shown you many good works from the Father; for which of them are you going to stone me?? The Jews answered him, ?It is not for a good work that we are going to stone you but for blasphemy, because you, being a man, make yourself God.? Jesus answered them, ?Is it not written in your Law, ?I said, you are gods?? If he called them gods to whom the word of God came?and Scripture cannot be broken? do you say of him whom the Father consecrated and sent into the world, ?You are blaspheming,? because I said, ?I am the Son of God?? If I am not doing the works of my Father, then do not believe me; but if I do them, even though you do not believe me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me and I am in the Father.? Again they sought to arrest him, but he escaped from their hands.
John 10:31-‬39 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.10.31-39.ESV       


A rather large section but what it shows that our Lord uses the word of God to anser his accuses just goes to show us the power of Gods word and we should not forget to use it where appropriate.
Not forgetting all the good work our Lord did while he was here on earth they proove beyond a shadow of a doubt that he was the Messiah the son of God.

Love and Peace

Hi

     He went away again across the Jordan to the place where John had been baptizing at first, and there he remained. And many came to him. And they said, ?John did no sign, but everything that John said about this man was true.? And many believed in him there.
John 10:40-‬42 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.10.40-42.ESV         


So our Lord went across the Jorden and many followed him and many of them had heard what John the Baptist had said about Christ and believed what he had said and  believed in the Lord Jesus.
I think the majority of these people were just ordenary people who believed.

Love and Peace

Hi
Moving on

       Now a certain man was ill, Lazarus of Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha. It was Mary who anointed the Lord with ointment and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was ill. So the sisters sent to him, saying, ?Lord, he whom you love is ill.? But when Jesus heard it he said, ?This illness does not lead to death. It is for the glory of God, so that the Son of God may be glorified through it.?
John 11:1-‬4 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.11.1-4.ESV         


Jesus loved Lazarus and his sister and when they sent for him to come he knew exactly what he would do you he would raise him for the glory of God and the glorifying of the son of God.
So it seems everything is planned in advance everything to the glory  of God and his son its wonderful that these miracles are still being told 2000 years later.

Love and Peace

Hi

     Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. So, when he heard that Lazarus was ill, he stayed two days longer in the place where he was. Then after this he said to the disciples, ?Let us go to Judea again.?
John 11:5-‬7 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.11.5-7.ESV         


This must have been very strange to his decipels someone he loved was very ill but instead of going directly he waited two days but our Lord had very good reasons for doing what he did it would work out for the glory of God and to prove who he is the son of God who was sent into the world to save sinners like me.

Love and Peace

Hi
Moving on

    The disciples said to him, ?Rabbi, the Jews were just now seeking to stone you, and are you going there again?? Jesus answered, ?Are there not twelve hours in the day? If anyone walks in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world. But if anyone walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him.?
John 11:8-‬10 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.11.8-10.ESV       


I think what our Lord is saying here is don't put of to tomorrow what can be done today.
The light of the world here is of course is Christ himself so if we have work to do for the Lord let us do it today while we have the light of the world.
Let us make sure we do not work in darkness on our own but always consult with our Lord and work in his glorious light.

Love and Peace
Dave

      After saying these things, he said to them, ?Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep, but I go to awaken him.? The disciples said to him, ?Lord, if he has fallen asleep, he will recover.? Now Jesus had spoken of his death, but they thought that he meant taking rest in sleep.
John 11:11-‬13 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.11.11-13.ESV       


An interesting section our Lord tells us what happens when we leave this world we fall asleep how long will we sleep it will last until the resurrection when our Lord returns to wake us it can be hundreds or even thousands of years for some but when it happens it will seam like when we wake in the morning we will have no consciousness of the time we were asleep.

Love and Peace
